It must be one of the Debian patches that disables this feature. If you can find out which one I can push a new package soon. Otherwise it'll wait a bit until I find some spare time. Cheers.

Though I don't know why your previous version works, it should
works if `argv_is_url 1` is in the config file (~/.w3m/config or

The argv_is_url feature is disabled by default in plain w3m.
In Debian, `argv_is_url 1` is already in /etc/w3m/config instead of
debian/patches. Anyway, I've applied the change to enable
argv_is_url by default in the master branch of Debian's Git repo.


So this bug will be fixed in version >=v0.5.3+git20151119.
